Two mass graves of martyrs discovered in Raqqa western countryside

SANA-Two mass graves were discovered Friday in Raqqa western countryside which include the bodies of tens of military and civilian martyrs who were executed at the hands of Deash (ISIS) terrorists when they were seizing the area.

“After the army has regained al-Raqqa western countryside and expelled Daesh terrorists from the area, and following the return of families to their towns and villages, we received information by some families reporting the uncovering of two mass graves near al-Wawi town, 25 KM to the south-eastern side of Dibsi Afnan area,” A field commander told SANA.

He added that the army went to the place of the two cemeteries and after initial investigation “We found the evidence that indicated the existence of the bodies, and then we called the civil defense teams who started to pull out the bodies.”
